"This is a MUST HAVE video for any parent wanting to instruct their baby or toddler in sign language! It is easy for parents to learn the basic signs as well as babies. I have yet to see one on the market that compares to this one. I started showing the video to my daughter when she was about 7-8 months old. As a parent, I have concerns about how much and what my child watches on TV. This video relieved my fears because while it was entertaining, it was slow paced and calming. Using babies captured my daughter's attention and she began signing herself. At about 1 year old, it was the video she most requested to watch. At about 18 months, I loaned the video to my friend. Incredibly, since then, my daughter began using signs from the video that we never used together! She is now 22 months and I have to laugh when I read that the average 2-3 year old uses 300 words. My daughter was using over 50 at 16 months and now greatly exceeds 300 words. She talks regularly in four-word sentences and sometimes uses 5-6 word sentences. My friends and family are amazed at how developed her verbal skills are for her age. I credit her advanced language skills with her learning sign language. In addition, I have viewed other sign language videos children. The pace was often too fast for a baby or not entertaining for a baby. In addition, many sign language videos do not use ASL which I found disappointing. Who knows if she will ever use ASL in her adult life, but we definitely know she won't have a need for "baby signs."

Content is good, but lacks DVD menu

"My main complaint about this DVD is that it is basically a video, but on a DVD. There is no DVD menu to choose which part to play, so you have to watch the introduction and tutorial parts (or fast forward through them) each time. I liked "My Baby Can Talk" better. That said, the content of the video is good. If it had a more user-friendly format on the DVD, I would like it a lot."

"My daughter is handicapped and has virtually no speech. We had tried other signing videos but she learned none of the signs.
After getting Baby See 'N Sign our daughter finally started using some of the basic signs."

"Baby See N Sign has been great. It is my daughter's FAVORITE thing to watch. She is captivated by the combinaton of bright colors, live video clips of babies and toddlers and accompanying sounds. Baby See N Sign gives me an opportunity to learn for myself and to teach my daughter at the same time. It is very easy to use and my daughter (7 months) already recgonizes many signs. My husband is currently participating now that he sees her ability to understand and react to signing. LOVE IT! "
